19 Apr 2018 --- Valio is launching a new line of lactose-free yogurt to the Spanish market. Speaking to FoodIngredientsFirst, during Alimetaria 2018, in Barcelona, Anette Almi, said: “In Spain, we are moving into the lactose-free dairy market.

At Valio, we are the expert in lactose-free dairy and now it is growing and there is a much bigger focus on the technology behind it.
